Dear Maura,
I was saddened to learn of Peter’s passing. You can take comfort in knowing that you were a caring and faithful daughter of whom he was so proud.
He was a fun classmate and a wonderful mentor when I proctored those huge classes with him at Harvard.
Class meetings and the trip to Ireland are cherished memories of my times in Peter’s company. Rest In Peace dear friend.

Dear Maura,

So sorry to hear about your father. He was a great classmate and friend! Enjoyed the recent get-togethers of the Class of 56-particularly the trips to Bermuda and Ireland.

He was extraordinarily proud of you and your relationship with B.C. We will be missed, but long remembered.

We are unable to attend the wake, as we are pretty much confined to the Cape during the Pandemic. Our son Chuck will be there to express our condolences.

You are in our thoughts and prayers, with sincere sympathy, caring thoughts and memories.

Maura,

So sorry to hear about your loss. We all had a wonderful time in Ireland for the BC football game. It was a pleasure to meet you father on the trip. It was great to be an honorary member of the class of ‘56 for a week.

You family will be in my thoughts.
